Future Publishing chooses Commercial Transfer

As part of moving to new furnished London offices near Paddington, Commercial Transfer were asked to complete the full clearance of two sites in Farnborough and relocate part oc the contents to a new site in Reading, clear the old offices ready for re-letting.


The project contained three clear phases for the client.

  1. The move: relocating the office to the new premises
  2. The clearance: ethical and safe disposal of unwanted furniture, paperwork and sensitive documents
  3. Reinstatement: Preparing the old office for its new tenants


Preparation was key for this move, due to the volume and variety of items involved and the locations within central London. We also used a dedicated crew throughout the whole project. With the move & clearance schedule set at 5 weeks, the project started with our crew systematically working through the offices, carefully marking and cataloguing each item into the relevant phases.

Phase 1
Once catalogued, the move could commence with the desks, furniture and personal effects destined for the new premises dismantled and the personal effect packed before transporting across London in our small vehicles to the new Paddington offices. These were then installed into the new workspaces with the minimum of disruption.

Phase 2
With the office move complete, the task began to clear the offices in Canary Warf and prepare ready for their new tenants. Over 1000 bags of confidential waste were cleared, sealed and tamper-tied ready for collection and disposal, and a further 20 skips filled with waste ready to be removed for recycling.

Phase 3
With the space cleared the final phase involved preparing the workspaces for the new tenants. The furniture was moved into the new floor plan and each workstation checked as complete.


The move and clearance was completed in the shortest possible time with the original offices reconfigured ready for the new tenants.

We instructed Commercial Transfer to complete the full clearance of two sites in Farnborough and relocation of part contents to a new site in Reading. 

This was a complex project and involved clearing 29,000 sqft of office space and then 15,000 sqft of warehouse space. Both of these sites had items going for waste, recycling, relocation and storage. Commercial transfer dealt with this with the utmost professionalism. The project was run to tight timelines and Commercial Transfer completed the project on time and on budget. I have no hesitation in recommending their services
